Promoting a true love for music are these Monkey Week ads. The series of ads features the names of iconic artists like Madonna and Eminem with images showing the ups and downs of their careers.

Made by advertising agency Leo Burnett in Spain, the Monkey Week ads take you through a musical journey. Each of the images feature an iconic song from one of the artists which then draws out a timeline of their rise to success. Madonna's "Like a Virgin" tells the story of the singer's struggles until this hit single. Just a quick scan across the image has told me that the icon lost her mother to cancer at age five and was forced to perform oral sex on two strangers when she was assaulted as a young girl.

Take a look at the Monkey Week ads and you will definitely find some information about these artists that you may have never known otherwise.
